There are many things to consider when a woman finds out she is pregnant with an unwanted child and wants to terminate the pregnancy. There are many abortion clinics to choose from and so how does one determine which is the best one to go to? The most common and first question that women ask is what is the cost of the abortion procedure as patients call around to different facilities to inquire about the best price. Normally, prices are very similar so there are other things that distinguish one abortion clinic from the other. In addition to price that should be important for choosing which office to go to are office hours, days of the week the offices are open, available transportation, privacy issues, waiting times, demonstrators, and reputation of the facility and physicians who perform the abortions.

Women who take care of several small children, go to school during the day or night, or only have off certain days of the week, need a medical office to have flexible hours to accommodate patient's needs. Whether or not an abortion facility is near a bus stop or train stop can be very important factors for patients who do not have an automobile to get to and from the medical facility. Locations that are closest to individuals are what people generally choose when going to a business. This is not necessarily the case when it comes to women choosing an office to have an abortion as they may be afraid that someone may see them who they do not want to do so. There are abortion facilities that may open late at night or early in the morning to accommodate a patient's privacy.

The first place to start looking for an abortion facility used to be the yellow pages up until the last 3 to 4 years. The number one source of how patients get in touch with abortion facilities is the internet. The second source of patients are from patients friends and the third source are patients that have come to the facility a previous time. The most important category of patients are word of mouth. If each patient tells one patient about their positive time at the office will assure consistent growth of patient volume. Patients with unwanted pregnancies should discuss with friends or family their experience of abortion facilities.

Most abortion facilities are able to offer several methods of performing abortions in the first and the second trimester of pregnancy. Surgical Dilation and Curettage or the Abortion Pill procedure are offered in the first trimester of pregnancy (3 to 14 weeks).

Make certain that the Abortion Facility that you are going has an abortion license if required, as this assures that the clinic meets the minimal standards of care to patients. When a patient goes into the lab, sonogram room, and finally the abortion procedure room, the areas should smell and look clean, there should be no blood noted in the room, and the instruments being used are sterilized.

Some insurance plans may cover the costs of an abortion but often this is not something that is guaranteed or discussed in a plan. There are a variety of medical facilities and so prices do range and it is best to make individual enquiries. There are charities that assist with the costs of this procedure should someone need financial help. Using an online search engine will give current details of active organizations and eligibility criteria.

The recovery process from abortion procedures depends on the number of weeks patient is and the type of abortion procedure that was performed. For patients who are six weeks or less, patients who have surgical procedures performed are able to go back to work within a few hours of having the procedure performed and are able to have sex the next day. Patients who are in the late second trimester of pregnancy need to take it easy for several days after completion of the abortion procedure and not have sex for 7 to 10 days after the procedure.
